Traditional Brown Patinas are available in 8oz., 32oz., 1 gallon, and 5 gallon sizes. Spray tops are included with 8oz. and 32oz. bottles. Liver of Sulfur is sold as a powder in 2oz., 4oz., and 16oz. sizes by weight. One gallon of Traditional Brown Patina generally covers 200 sq. ft.
Antiquing Patina creates an aged brown to black finish on bronze, brass, and copper. On iron, steel, aluminum, and zinc, it will produce a grey to black patina. It should not be used on stainless steel. Antiquing Patina does not need to be diluted, but may be thinned with distilled water for a lighter finish. This cold patina is commonly used on the Metal Coatings and as a base for Traditional Green Patinas.
Copper Plating Patina produces a copper finish on iron and steel. Applied cold, lighter coats will develop a salmon copper color while heavier coats will produce darker copper colors. Copper Plating does not work with the Metal Coatings or most other patinas such as Tiffany Green. However, it can be used as a base for the Traditional Torch Patina. Diluting should not be necessary with this formula.
Copper Rust Patina causes a red to brown finish on bronze, brass, and copper. This cold patina should not need to be diluted. It will blacken iron and steel if applied hot. Copper Rust Patina does not work on the Metal Coatings.
Copper Sulfate Patina creates a brown finish as a hot patina on bronze, brass, and copper. Applied cold, this patina will develop a copper color on steel and a grey finish on zinc. It does not need to be diluted before use.
Darkening Patina is most commonly used cold on bronze, brass, and copper to produce a beautiful brown finish. This patina is often diluted with distilled water before use to lighten the color. Normal colors will range from golden brown to very dark brown (almost black). On iron and steel, Darkening Patina will create a grey to black finish. On zinc, this patina will also be black.
Deep Brown Patina creates a slow reacting brown finish on bronze, brass, and copper. On iron and steel, it will produce a quick dark brown patina with greys and blacks. On zinc, the finish is a fast developing yellow brown. It should not be used on stainless steel. Deep Brown Patina does not need to be diluted, but may be thinned with distilled water for lighter coats or colors. Additional coats will darken the patina.
Ferric Nitrate Patina creates a transparent brown patina when applied hot to bronze, brass, and copper. It does not need to be dilutued before use. The final color is determined by the strength of the solution, amount applied, surface preparation, and the temperature of the metal during application. Lighter applications will be transparent golden brown. Additional coats will turn dark burgundy to brown and more opaque. Ferric Nitrate Patina is commonly used over a Liver of Sulfur base to produce a chocolate brown patina. On iron, steel, and zinc, Ferric Nitrate Patina is applied cold and takes hours to develop. On iron and steel, this process generates a stable orange rust. On zinc, the result is a yellow brown finish.
Ferric Nitrate/Ferric Chloride Patina produces a transparent red brown finish when applied hot to bronze, brass, and copper. Similar to Ferric Nitrate Patina, the final color and opacity is determined by the application process. Additional coats will turn darker brown and more opaque. Ferric Nitrate/Ferric Chloride Patina does not need to be diluted before use.
Honeycomb Patina causes a golden brown finish on iron, steel, aluminum, zinc, and stainless steel. On bronze, brass, and copper the patina is a warm brown. Honeycomb Patina is applied cold to all metals, should not be diluted before use, and takes 3-5 minutes to develop with agitation depending on the surface.
Japanese Brown may be used on bronze, brass, and copper resulting in a golden brown finish, but it is most commonly used hot or cold on iron and steel. When applied cold to iron or steel, a brown rust will form. On heated iron or steel, a dark chocolate finish will result. Heat will darken the color as well as reduce mottling.
Tan is a hot patina for all metals resulting in an opaque white/tan finish. It also works well in combination with Ferric Nitrate.
